LASER LIPO PATIENT CONSENT
This Form will be given to you when you come in for your first appointment, to be completely filled out, signed by the patient and accepted by The Gua Sha Facial Co. before any treatments will be performed. Must be 18 yrs of age or older.
Laser Lipo is a technology to breakdown fat deposits. These procedures do not involve invasive surgery - there is no need for anesthesia, hospital stay and no down time. They provide a non-invasive method to break down stubborn fat deposits that never seem to disappear no matter what your diet is or how hard you exercise. The most problematic body areas are abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs (inner or outer) and chin area. (double chin)
Appointments are usually scheduled one treatment per week. In order to ensure maximum results, it is necessary to follow the recommended treatment schedule. The total number of treatments will vary between individuals. On occasion, there are patients that do not respond to treatments.

PRE and POST TREATMENT AGREEMENT for: Laser Lipo
Always seek medical advice before starting, changing or terminating any medical treatment or daily routine such as exercise, diet or water intake.
Before your Treatment
The first session will include a consultation to determine if your body will respond appropriately. Total session time is generally 45 minutes to one hour in length for one area.
Drink at least 6 -8 glasses (8 oz.) of water daily, especially the day before and throughout the day on the treatment day. Should you have any condition of the heart or kidney or are on diuretics or any medication that affects the kidney, heart, liver or lymphatic system, please check with your physician regarding the proper water intake for you.
Keep a balanced diet and avoid fatty foods, at least 3 days before treatment.
Please wear appropriate clothing to your appointment. Comfortable clothing.
After your Treatment
** Essentially, Laser Lipo will destabilize and break down fat into carbohydrates and waste material. That is why cardiovascular exercise and water are vital.
Cardio afterwards serves two purposes; to burn off the released carbohydrates, and to encourage the contraction and expansion of lymphatic vessels to channel out waste.
Meanwhile, the water acts to thin that waste and to hasten its removal from the body through the urine.
Continue with brisk to moderate exercise following your treatments. This helps regulate the lymphatic system, tone skin and many other incredible benefits, which also includes a reduction in stress.
Follow these simple rules to maximize results:
A balanced diet is the best diet. Often clients will need to reduce intake of simple carbohydrates so they do not compete with those produced by the treatment. Simple carbohydrates include sugar, bread, most sweet fruit, white rice, and pasta. *Brown rice, nuts, unprocessed pocket breads, and vegetables are fine.
Consume two liters (8/8 oz) of water each day, and even more with exercise.
Should you have any condition of the heart or kidney or are on diuretics or any medication that affects the kidney, heart, liver or lymphatic system, please check with your physician regarding the proper water intake for you.
Avoid alcohol for 24 hours after your treatment, alcohol will compete with your liver. Stay away from carbonated water and no soda, as well!
Let us know if you begin any new medications, including the pill, topical creams, and natural supplements, or if you are beginning to plan for having a child, or if you are diagnosed with any disease, syndrome, or skin disorder, which you have not previously informed us about.
Follow any advice you may be given during your treatment. Every person is different. We are trained professionals and will tailor each treatment to suit you and answer any questions you may have.
Diaphragmatic breathing - Conscious, diaphragmatic breathing is like a massage for your internal organs! It also encourages lymph flow. Sit upright in a comfortable chair or lie on your bed with your knees slightly bent. Rest your hands on your ribs. Take deep breaths to relax. As you breathe in, direct the air down to your tummy (abdomen), which you will feel rising under your hands. (Imagine that there is a balloon in your stomach: Inhale– fill up the balloon in your belly) Breathe out slowly by ‘sighing’ the air out. While breathing out, let your abdomen relax in again. (Exhale– deflate the balloon.) Do the deep breathing exercises five times. Have a short rest before getting up to avoid feeling dizzy. Start out very slowly and only try a few breaths at a time, but practice a few times a day. Breathing will change naturally because of structural manipulation.
Do NOT take a hot shower (warm is alright), spa or sauna straight after treatment.
If you experience any mild swelling or redness in the treated area, please contact us.
Please keep the following statements in mind throughout our Laser Lipo Program.
Combining a balanced diet and regular exercise with the Laser Lipo Treatments are the most efficient ways to eliminate and keep away cellulite and fat cells from forming.
Please be aware that results vary across individuals, but as your professional technician/practitioners, we are trained to help you get the best results from your treatment.
If you are uncomfortable at any stage of the treatment, please make your practitioner aware immediately.
Although our Laser Lipo Treatments may result in weight loss and fat reduction in conjunction with exercise and proper nutrition, this program is not for weight loss.
This treatment is designed for body shaping and to reduce stubborn fatty areas that don’t seem to budge.
Do not expect this treatment to strip away huge layers of fat in a single session. Results can sometimes be noticed after the first treatment, with more improvement noticed within a few days. Desired results may be achieved within 6 to 12 sessions depending on your body type and your desire goals. Please keep in mind that every body is different and many factors contribute to the production of fat and cellulite.
